Forum OpenACS Q&A: mod_R for Apache

13: mod_R for Apache (response to 1)
Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
FYI, someone's recently created mod_R, which embeds R into Apache 2.0. No design docs that I could find, but the readme implies that it only works with the prefork Apache MPM, which makes sense as R isn't yet thread-safe. At first glance, the functionality mod_R offers seems to be extremely limited, so limited I'm not even sure why its creator even wants to use it; but then I don't know much about Apache.
